People give you weird looks when you eat cookies for breakfast, so this is the next best thing...
It's been so long since I've written anything just for fun, that it feels a little bit weird to even be trying right now. I wish I could pinpoint what happened to make this all seem more like a chore than something I actually enjoy doing so I could avoid it in the future, but... Continue Reading →
